Olive Ridley turtle (RB.EI.021), admitted 14-Jun-17, Landaa Giraavaru, Baa Atoll, Maldives
Weight / length: 9.8kg / 47.8cm (on admission);
Johanna was found by our guests at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru, after she had beached herself and become stranded. She was very weak upon admission to our Centre, with damage to her carapace from an old wound (the majority of the shell is now hardened and healed).
Johanna has since been very active in our recovery pool, diving with ease and enjoying the abundant food on offer. Her behaviour is very encouraging and she is therefore scheduled to be released in the coming days!
18 June 2017 – Release Day!
